So I've got a desktop that I purchased about 3 and a half years ago.
Motherboard: ASUS P5N-D
PSU: AZZA PSAZ-1000 (not the 1000A)
DVD: Samsung Super-WriteMaster Dual/Double Layer 22x DVDRW Burner OEM
Graphics: 2x GeForce 9400GT
Audio: Onboard audio
RAM: 2x 2048MB 800MHZ Corsair XMS DDR2
HDD: Hitachi Deskstar 500GB 3.0Gb/s 7200RPM (model: HDP725050GLA360)
Hitachi Deskstar 320GB 3.0Gb/s 7200RPM (model: HDT725032VLA360)
Seagate Barracuda GT 7200.11 500GB 3.0Gb/S 7200RPM
So, my issue...Recently my computer started acting up. The last time I went into my setup menu during boot, the power display started redlining on the fans section. It was supposed to be something between 2.8 and 3.0 amps but kept dropping to about 1.9-2.3 amps... at least I think that's what it was.
Yesterday I booted up my desktop, it booted up fine-minus the fact that my bootmgr.exe is gone so now I have to manually boot my HDD-after about 2-3 minutes of operation, the system BSOD'd but rather than give me the typical "illegal error" all my computer said was "your hardware has stopped working".
There wasn't any further information given. I haven't booted up my desktop since then-I'd rather not exacerbate a situation that might be salvageable.Any ideas?
I'm thinking it might be a faulty PSU but I'm not sure.
If it IS my PSU and all I need is a replacement, can I pick up just any PSU-preferably a 1000W-or do I need to buy a specific type of PSU. I understand that my computer is OLD but I don't have the pocketbook to buy a brand new desktop.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
